On Gambhir’s ‘filth’ tweet, Kejriwal responds with a defamation notice

Gautam Gambhir

Gautam Gambhir is sitting in an air-conditioned auto. The notice also read that the AAP finds the tweets by Gambhir "offending". The head of a housing colony in East Delhi's Krishna Nagar told NDTV that he had received the pamphlet by post on May 2, a week before Atishi's press conference on it.

A day of drama marked the end of the election campaign in Delhi, with BJP candidate from East Delhi and former cricketer Gautam Gambhir on Friday vowing to "hang myself in public" if his opponent, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)'s Atishi can prove that he circulated a slanderous pamphlet against her.

Gautam Gambhir, in a series of tweets, said he is "ashamed" to have Arvind Kejriwal as chief minister and he would withdraw his candidature if the charge against him is proved.

The former Indian batsman turned politician, Gautam Gambhir has been a mainstay in the news recently due to his bid to contest the elections for the Indian National Assembly (Lok Sabha) under the leadership of Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Adding more to the bitterness, an AAP volunteer has filed a criminal defamation complaint against BJP's North East Delhi candidate Manoj Tiwari and spokesperson Harish Khurana for allegedly defaming him in connection with an assault on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal during a poll rally recently.

"Soon after the allegations surfaced, he had already made a decision to face the issue on his own and with minimal involvement from the party as a result of which he sent the defamation notice to AAP and its leaders after getting a go-ahead from the party's high command", said a party source. How can women expect safety if people wid such mentality are voted in?

Singh said he was shocked to know about the incident and that Gambhir "is above all this". Atishi, stay strong. I can imagine how hard it must be for you. The notice also asks Gambhir to tender an apology or face legal action. "It is precisely this kind of forces we have to fight against", he had tweeted.

Gambhir has rejected the allegation of circulating the derogatory pamphlet, saying that he would "quit politics" if proven guilty.

Gambhir, however, denied the allegations that he got the pamphlet distributed.
